In a society filled with violence, drug use and declining family values, many Texas children and youth often fall victim to a  dysfunctional  family unit, which sometimes involves abuse and/or neglect.  Much negative publicity surrounds Texas’ foster care program because so much media attention is focused problems with the program.

A World For Children was created in 1997 to provide therapeutic  services to Texas’ most  vulnerable population – children/youth who have been removed from their homes because of issues of abuse and/or neglect.  Staff devotes their time to creating a safe haven for these  youth and providing for their needs through foster care.

With intense training for foster families and staff, A World For Children has developed into a premier agency. The focus has always been on surrounding our families and children with  individualized wrap around services and normalization for our children in care.

The founders of AWFC created, nurtured and built an agency based on integrity, honesty, fiscal responsibility and always putting the needs of children in care first.  We are proud our staff and families keep focused on the needs of each individual child.
